Eva Air took delivery of its first Boeing B777, offering upgraded cabins and new inflight services including an On-demand entertainment system with movies, features, music, video games and shopping; satellite communications; a digital air-to-ground Short Message Service in English and Chinese and intelligent-memory seating.

The carrier has configured its new B777-300ER to carry 316 passengers in the three upgraded cabins with 42 seats in Premium Laurel Class, 63 in Elite, and 211 in Economy. The message system is easy for passengers to access from their in-seat entertainment systems, allowing travelers to send messages to mobile phones or e-mail addresses and receive replies at a cost of $1.50 per message.

Adding to the top cabin class experience, EVA has outfitted Premium Laurel with fine bone china, an espresso maker, a wine chiller and luxurious, lofty comforters and pillows. Meanwhile, EVA is upgrading and renaming Evergreen Deluxe Class to Elite Class, offering business-class seats that are 18.5 inches wide and have a 38-inch pitch. Seating is further enhanced with EVA’s adjustable headrests, coat hooks, and AVOD entertainment systems with expanded 8.4-inch touch-screens.

Economy class also has been upgraded, with 8.4-inch touch-screen entertainment systems and new, 18.3-inch-wide seats with 33-inch pitch and adjustable headrests.
